Registration for 2021-22 busing
All families who wish to use District transportation for the 2021-22 school year MUST REGISTER online using the options below. Please read the options below to find out which registration scenario applies to your family.
Identify which transportation option best applies to your family:
- Students who live two or more miles from their home school can register for transportation for no fee. Use the form in step one below.
- Students who live less than two miles, and are not considered to be part of the "walk zone," can register for busing for a fee. Payment is due by July 30, 2021. Use steps one and two below to complete these items.
- Fee-based bus service is not available if the distance between the student's home and school is less than one mile for secondary school students and a half mile for elementary students. These students are in the "walk zone" and no busing is provided.
- If you reside outside of District boundaries and are not using a daycare or alternate location in the District, busing is not available. If you choose to use a daycare or alternate location, please register and pay any applicable fees due to distance. Use steps one and two below to complete these items.
Note: All kindergarten students will receive busing at no cost, regardless of the distance between the student's home and school. Learn more here.
